Why Do You Have the Right to Your Money? WI Teachers to Tea Party

While I don't agree that teachers don't do anything of value, but I do have the "right" to my money.  I earned it right? 

I guess my question is why do they have the right to my money?

"What makes you entitled you your money"

But if we are going to support public schools and we need public school teachers, how else are we going to pay them if not with our tax dollars?

The problem is not with paying them. The problem is their belief they are entitled to as many tax dollars as they can get their hands on. Public-sector "collective bargaining" is nothing more than collusion. It is not two opposing sides. One side enriches the other. The public sector union provides campaign funds to the side that provides raises and benefits.

PunditMom: Nobody is saying the teachers should not get paid with tax dollars. The problem is the states can no longer afford the big pensions and benefits promised to the union workers. They are going broke.
The unions give money to the Democrats using union dues from the union members to ensure that the Dems stay in power. In return, the Democrats promise big pensions and benefits to the unions...and so on, and so on. It's one big vicious cycle. And as a result, the Dems allegiance is to the unions and not the private tax payers.

Teachers by and large view liberal, socialist, progressive Democrats to be on the side of the angels and Conservative Republicans to be knuckle-draggers.

It is surprising to me that members of public sector unions that financially support only one of the political parties in a two-party system believe they should be immune from push-back by the other party.

Public sector workers are pretty clear in their belief that their halos should protect them from the fallout of political battles that they themselves participate in through the use of their union dues.

I think your idea of what the conservative view of teachers is a little skewed. We believe that teachers deserve a good pay check. Matter of fact, if the system changed they way most conservatives want teachers would actually get paid more. We want good teachers to get paid and the best of the best deserve bonuses. What we object to is the unions protecting bad teachers. We also object to the fact that union dues is used to fund candidates that they sit down with to make deals with taxpayer dollars. These deals are made more for the contributions with little or no regard to tax payer dollars they are using for these deals.
